9781450286640: Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements: The Silent, Peaceful Coup D'état in China

Many people think that the massacre at Tiananmen Square was a complete victory for the communists in charge of China, but history proves that is not the case.

Chan Kai Yee, who suffered through the Cultural Revolution while Mao Zedong ruled China with an iron fist, describes how elite intellectuals prepared to fight back. His profound knowledge of history and close contacts with key dissenters give him an unmatched perspective on events, which culminated with the protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

Thousands of people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre; while the Communist Party ostensibly remained in power, their leading members start to worry. The massacre helped reformers overcome the resistance of stalwart conservatives who previously would not budge from their positions. Gradually, talented intellectuals began to mount a silent, peaceful coup d'état to seize control of the country.

With intellectuals running the country, China became a dominant world power that could surpass the United States. Discover how a band of intellectuals transformed a nation and the world in Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements.
